Young Men of Excellence is a prestigious program designed within the Seminole County Public Schools System for the academic and personal advancement of minority students. This program offers the opportunity for participants to develop a strong sense of self, as well as, character-building skills.
It's both! YMOE is a year long elective class, which students will be able to take each year they are in high school. The class also serves as an in-school club, which students meet during 1st and 2nd period.
We offer our students various opportunities, such as community involvement, exposure to guest speakers, college tours, personal development, academic success, peer mentors, college readiness and so much more. Being a part of the Young Men of Excellence Program includes perks, such as, field trips, program apparel, program retreats, future career opportunities and scholarships.
While in the program, students will participate in class discussions regarding various course topics, develop sound leadership skills, enhance social/personal skills, and focus on personal and professional development, while engaging in community service, as well as, outreach activities. We develop young men into great men, with a focus on professionalism, excellence and quality. Our goal is to establish excellence and noble manhood in the hearts and minds of all our students.
We are currently accepting applications for incoming 9th and 10th graders with a minimum GPA of 2.5 or higher who demonstrate a drive to excel in all areas of life, the willingness to lead, as well as, pursue personal development. Click the "Register" tab above to sign-up for the class.
Students within the Young Men of Excellence Program are also expected to be involved in school wide activities, as well as, community volunteer opportunities. These philanthropic ventures allow our students to exercise their leadership skills, network with diverse organizations, while making a difference in the community.
